Running:
12km - 1:08

Easy run on rolling hills around Waterford. Legs still a bit heavy.

26 Jul 2008

Running:
32km - 2:57

First run over 30km. Speed was (too) good until I blew up at 25k. Managed to get back ok, but got very sick (I'll spare details) about half an hour after the run. Might have been the gel I took for the first time, or the speed or the fact that it was 25 dgrees.

25 July 2008

Running:
10km - 57:00

Easy run before the long one tomorrow. A bit of a struggle for some reason.

23 Jul 2008

Swim: 750m (250, 250, 250)

Nice 12.5m "swimming" pool in some hotel in Cumbria. Steam room made up for it.

Tanita BC545

Treated myself to the new Tanita BC545 Body fat analysis with segmental measurement and visceral fat indicator. Being a sucker for that sort of thing, this is a very impressive piece of kit.
